4/20 The Force is with this Angels lineup

It is the same old Angels lineup for facing a righty, but since it is Star Wars night at the Big A, we can only hope (a new hope?) that The Force is with the offense tonight because they need all the help they can get. Tonight's #Angels lineup. — Eric Kay (@EKayAngels) April 20, 2015  I just hope that Jerry Dipoto makes some sort of appearance tonight...

Michigan State Fan Proposes To Married Allie LaForce

  You moron, Allie LaForce is married to Angels pitcher Joe Smith, a guy who is making $5,250,000 this year and the same in 2016 — guaranteed! You see that rock on her finger? Joe Smith actually had the money to pay cash for it. The only department that Michigan State fan might have Joe Smith beat in, is the How To Act On Put-In-Bay category. Who can possibly forget this police...

Now, it looks like Turner’s Allie LaForce has been proposed to live on national television. A Michigan State supporter got a little bit ahead of himself ahead of the Final Four, getting down on one knee...

2015 Player Projection: Joe Smith

The reliever with the boring name turned into a tremendous asset in the Angels bullpen last season. Can Joe Smith build on his career year? What happened in 2014?Joe Smith was signed to a three-year, $15.75 million deal to provide something resembling stability in the Angels bullpen.

Questioning Joe Smith’s 2014 season

Joe Smith was the reliever with the pedestrian name but the excellent numbers in 2014. Despite a very impressive year, Smith still appears to be flying under the radar. But maybe that is for the best since it seems like he might have been pitching well over his head. Should the Angels have signed Smith for so much money (3 years, $15.8 million)? The general sabermetrics stance on...

Joe Smith gets first crack as closer, doesn't disappoint in Angels' win

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Joe Smith woke up Monday morning knowing he was going to pitch. In reality it was more like Monday afternoon after waking up around 2pm because he didn't get to bed until 6am as a result of the Angels spending all night flying across the country. Rather he believed it or was just delirious, the feeling stuck with him as he made his way through the Angels clubhouse...

Angels reliever Joe Smith takes injury of Kole Calhoun tough

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- At this point, you could take your pick. Which member of the Angels bullpen would be the next to relinquish a lead? You could go down the list. By the numbers, it certainly was not to be Joe Smith. In an ineffective bullpen, he was an effective one. In six appearances, he allowed just three hits, eight strikeouts, no walks, and a 0.00 ERA. Yet, on Tuesday night...
